Did you know that MassBike offers free bike safety trainings to children grades 4 – 8? Each school year, MassBike’s Safe Routes to School Tranings teaches thousands of elementary and middle school children how to ride their bikes more safely. Since beginning our youth education outreach, we’ve brought our school-age workshops to schools in Worcester, Cambridge, Salem, Franklin, Framingham, and dozens of other communities around the Commonwealth.
Would you like your local school to be next?
If so, we are currently scheduling classes before the end of the 2013-2014 school year, and for the coming 2014-2015 school year. To get the wheels spinning, contact Erin Reed at MassDOT by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 857-719-5489.
The MassBike Safe Routes to School curriculum reviews basic maintenance, rules of the road, proper helmet fitting, and overall visibility. Our instructors tailor the message to age-level to ensure that these critical safety lessons are most appropriate, effective and empowering. Classes are made possible through MassRIDES, a program of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation that promotes biking, walking, and transit use.
